Metal 101- The Death Metaller by LusoSkav Metal 101- The Death Metaller by LusoSkav
So, after a few years passing, and many, many metal shows attended, i couldn't help but to notice the diferent archetypes and demographics in the metalhead culture that i kept coming across.
And since i never saw any kind of descriptive charts that accurately portrayed the metal subculture i so dearly know and love, i decided to do it myself!

So, based on people that i know, people that i merely saw, often or not that often, and on blunt personal experience, i began scribbling out a few, and constructed many more in my mind, which is to say, that there will be quite a few before i'm done.

Also remember this is not meant to offend. It's all harmless satire, more often than not :)

So yes. Hope you enjoy Luso's Handy Guide to Metalheads


and DA is retarded and won't let me post the full title

I'm a mix of this and the Nu Metal kid. I can't pig squeal, but I can do low gutturals on command. I don't usually listen to brutal death metal, but when I do it's either Pig Destroyer or Flesh Consumed.

"Can probably pig-squeal on command"

...

HAHA! That was my favorite line.  
But I'm curious...why a pig squeal and not a demonic roar? =p
Also...is there a stereotype for a more nerdy (more so than the Power Metaller), furry metal head, or even a more generic metal critic?

Haha, it's basically Ben from DP. This kind of guy can definitely hook you up with everything the streets have to offer, no exception, and from my personal experience he might also be into old school rap music.

"But probably secretly listens to a couple of bands, calling them 'Melodic Brutal Death' or something of the sort"

Is that an insult against The Black Dahlia Murder? XD

yeah i'm aware, but those people really don't know what they're talking about
essentially tbdm is what deathcore wishes it was. minus the breakdowns i guess

I would definitely say I evolved from nu metal kid ( korn obsessed) to this (deathsin and thrash) yes I do wear camo shorts and skater shoes. but I would argue that since I bench about 400 lbs I do not fit into out of shape. also I have short hair

This is probably the most accurate description of myself, compared to the rest anyway. I would like to see another mainstream variant. The ones who claim Bullet for my Valentine and Five Finger Death Cunt... Err, I mean Punch, are legit metal bands. The ones who give Groove Metal a bad name lol. Sorry, I'm kind of a hater. My bad guys lol.

Aside from the drinking/smoking, this guy kinda looks like me...a few years from now. Note that I mostly listen to Nu-Metal, though I think Cannibal Corpse is some good scary music.

Cannibal Corpse I wouldn't say are quite heavy enough to be -Brutal- death metal, try something like Flesh Consumed, Mortician, or Katalepsy

I used to be able to pig-squeal on command until I got a terrible asthma attack and acute bronchitis and kept coughing for a few weeks. Then, when I thought I was better, I decided to jam along to a few songs. Then I discovered that I messed up my vocal cords because of coughing excessively. I can't even do any extreme vocal technique now.
Tragedy. I could have been this guy. (Except for the beer/smoke part and the long hair)

More of a Tech Death Metal guy, but this sounds a lot like me, Baggy camo pants, somewhat out of shape, I don't hate deathcore, but its not a genre that suits my taste, the only deathcore band I like is the early days of Job for a Cowboy before they turned death metal, I can't pig squeel, but I know different growling techniques, but I'm not good at it, its not something I do often, and Slouchy Posture.
